Just to add my 2.5 cents and to clarify some of the misstatements in the video: I do agree that the car was overpriced when it was introduced. No one paid full price for it when it showed up. Also, the 76K that he kept on mentioning was for a base car. The car he rented from Turo pretty much had every option, full range adaptive cruise control, Kona seat package, Crystal Red Tintcoat paint, and probably listed for 82K. ELR does has rain sensing wipers. And they were sold outside of Detroit. The instrument cluster for the dash was in the ELR first, then some of those features migrated to the next gen Volt. Blind spots from the A pillar are just as bad in the Volt as they are in my ELR. How many of us that are six feet or over have ever sat in the back seat of a Volt behind the driver with the driver's seat set for a six foot driver? The ELR is a coupe, dumb ass. On average, I've been getting between 45 to 50 miles of range, when I watch my speed. Did you notice that he had 0 miles of electric range in the video? Odds are pretty good that he never charged it and was driving using the gas generator. ELR weighs 273 pounds more than my 2013 Volt. The cars that are in the 24 to 28k cost range have some significant miles on them. 2014 ELR had 181 hp and 295 ft lbs of torque - for 2016 a slight bump up to 233 hp and 373 ft lbs of torque. Last but not least, the doors are the same length as a Corvette, but I find it's easier to get in and out of the car, compared to the Volt. Obviously, it's not as fast as a Tesla, but the interior of a Tesla let me down. Value is in the eye of the beholder - I got a smokin' deal on my ELR back in May of 2015. The car had 1309 miles on it, with the balance of the factory warranty. I paid what my fully loaded Volt stickered for back in 2013. Sorry about the long rant, but I just needed to set the record straight.
